SLA demolishes Liberation Tigers’ Heroes’ Resting Homes in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 04 February 2010, 05:04 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) occupying Jaffna peninsula is actively engaged in demolishing the Heroes’ Resting Homes (HRH) of fallen Liberation Tigers in Uduppidi, Kodikaamam, Koappaay and Veala’nai in the islets of Jaffna, sources in Jaffna said. Foreign media persons now visiting Jaffna peninsula in large numbers who show a keen interest in visiting the HRHs are shocked to witness the systematic demolishment of war heroes’ memorial monuments which are given due respect all over the world.

SLA which invaded the peninsula in 1996 had then ploughed down the HRHs in the peninsula with bulldozers but during the 2002 peace accord between the government and the Liberation Tigers they had been restored.

I’langku’lam HRH in Uduppiddi in Vadamaraadchi, Kodikaamam HRH in Thenmaraadchi, Koappaay HRH in Jaffna and Chaaddi HRH in Veala’nai in the islets of Jaffna are ones which are being demolished and erased to the ground by the SLA.

The people in the peninsula are not allowed to visit the HRHs and now the news of SLA demolishing reaching them has enraged them.
